• ### How we check credit card number?

To check if the credit card number is valid. We check for the following:

• First Digit - Major Industry Identifier
• Six Digit - Issuer identification number
• Seven Digit - Personal Account Number and Checksum

The check digit (x) is obtained by computing the sum of the non-check digits then computing 9 times that value modulo 10 (in equation form, ((67 × 9) mod 10)). In algorithm form:

• Compute the sum of the non-check digits (67).
• Multiply by 9 (603).
• The units digit (3) is the check digit. Thus, x=3.

(Alternative method) The check digit (x) is obtained by computing the sum of the other digits (third row) then subtracting the units digit from 10 (67 => Units digit 7; 10 − 7 = check digit 3). In algorithm form:

• Compute the sum of the non-check digits (67).
• Take the units digit (7).
• Subtract the units digit from 10.
• The result (3) is the check digit. In case the sum of digits ends in 0 then 0 is the check digit.

INFO: Credit card number generated are valid but DOES NOT WORK like an actual credit card. They do not have any actual REAL VALUE. They are for data testing and verification purposes only.
